2010 Cec Smallville Serie De Television

  • General thoughts: Like most of you, I really loved Modern Family in its first season. The series took a number of recognizable family sitcom plots and mashed them expertly with the mockumentary style, creating a package that felt familiar, but novel. When Family took home the Emmy award for Outstanding Comedy Series, I wasnt upset at all. I thought there were better choices that didnt even get nominated, but this was a series that I could most certainly respect and most of the time, really enjoy.

  • In my experience, comedies improve fairly substantially in their second season. More so than dramas, comedies take time to find their voice, feel out the capabilities of the actors and their chemistry with one another, and usually, that leads to uneven first seasons and pretty great second seasons. All of the great comedies of the 21st century (Arrested Development, The Office, 30 Rock, Party Down, Parks and Recreation, Community, How I Met Your Mother, etc.) had wonderful season seasons. Unfortunately, the second season of Modern Family did not follow this trend at all. Im not sure if the slight novelty wore off in an instant, the writers started phoning it in or what happened, but season two of Modern Family was wholly uneven and nowhere near as an enjoyable as the first. Instead of diving deeper into the characters and broadening the world of the series, Modern Family embraced its traditional family sitcom roots and relied on one physical comedy gag after another.

  • Look, Im not sure that Modern Family has much of a ceiling that it hasnt reached yet. The series is what it is and there are just slightly better and slightly worse versions of that template. In general, thats not really a bad thing at all. There are enough other great comedies on television that I dont need Family to prop up the genre. But when you never take any risks and you never waver from the kinds of jokes that you tell, it makes your failures a lot less sympathetic, at least in my mind. When Community has a messy, middling episode, its often because the scope is too large or the series needs a break from its higher-concept fare. Its B-minuses are easier to swallow because there are so many As that have come before and will continue to come in the future. But with Modern Family, nearly episode is a B/B-minus, and over time, that becomes boring and in some instances, appears lazy.

  • So much of what made the first season of Modern Family enjoyable was the ways the series found to bring everyone together. This is a series that is immensely improved when the whole cast is together and nearly every single strong episode Family has done involves them all together or at least trying to get all together (some variation on that form). That wasnt as prevalent in season two and Im really unsure why. At a certain point, maybe you run out of holidays, birthdays and various other parties to have, but I cannot imagine that time comes 35 episodes into your run.

  • Moreover, so many episodes strained to keep the series framework in tact, which not only hampered the series ability to be funny, but often short-changed a story or two along the way. In certain weeks, it felt like as if the episode had nothing to do for certain portions of the family, often Jay, Gloria and Manny, but shoved them into rudderless, unfunny plots that took away from other, better stuff elsewhere because well, everybody has to be in the episode! I think everyone on the cast is talented and deserves their respective time on the screen, but stepping away from the very stringent formula would probably do this series some good.

  • In general, Im really confused as to why this season of Modern Family was such a creative disappointment. It failed to do any of the things great comedies do in the second season and regularly felt like it was clinging to tropes, plots and returning characters and gags that define a comedy in its sixth or seventh season. The actors are really fantastic and often raise the material to a level higher than it should make in the first place, but I regularly feel like the series writers are letting them down.

  • And yet, perhaps this is just all Modern Family is. It is a family sitcom in the truest sense, a retro throwback with a new coat of paint. This series is never really going to challenge us intellectually or even toy with the conventions of the form, it is just not that kind of series. I never expected it to be the best comedy on television, but perhaps even my tempered expectations were too high. But if youre relying on some of the things Modern Family relied on so heavily during its second season, the problems arent going to go away, theyre probably going to get much, much worse. It wont impact the series popularity at all, but I know I certainly wont care about the series anymore. And thats all you folks really care about anyway, right?

  • One final thing, and its positive: The series did do a nice job of weeding out the HORRIBLE voice-over issues it had. Even some of the great first season episodes relied on that device too often and it was especially grating early in season two. However, I did appreciate that the writers figured out that they could still button off episodes with emotional and heartwarming moments without screaming them at the top of their lungs. Characters can give those speeches to other characters instead of preaching them to the audience.

  • Didnt have nearly as many issues with this season as you did. Yes, it was uneven. But the majority of the episodes were still really enjoyable, and even the ones that didnt work usually still managed a decent amoung of laughs (Our Children, Ourselves aside). No, its not as good Parks and Rec or Community. But its still a really funny and endearing show. I gave the season a B on my blog, and I think thats pretty appropriate (season 1 would be an A, by the way).

  • Hit it right on the head Cory. I was going to address the voice over thing as a reason I thought the season improved, but then you got it in the last paragraph and I couldnt have said it better. It did seem like every week they were trotting out familiar characters, and while sometimes that was a real plus for me, other weeks it just wasnt (Fizbo, Clive Bixby, Claires Mom) , and the episodes as a whole just werent as consistently funny. Maybe one third of each episode was very funny. but the other two subplots were often forgettable.

  • I think theres very little to talk about with Modern Family in that I rarely ever sought out episode capsule reviews after watching the show because theres much less to analyze. I guess in that sense theres not much playing with the template.
